I started curling when I was 12 with my mom and a friend and her mom. We learned the game and spent that amazing quality time with adults in a positive way. That’s what curling has always been for me. Connecting with other curlers, who are some of the best people on the planet. When I started dating a non-curler, he was told he had to learn the game. My parents and I took him to a fun Spiel on Boxing Day in Irma, Alberta. He fell so many times. And hard! But he loved it. Now we both Curl regularly in Vermilion and bonspiel every weekend we can. This weekend, we are curling with my daughter and a friend for the first time. Curling has become a generational pastime and one that connects everyone in our family. I love being able to share an activity with my family.
